Student Resources

Student Transitions is committed to providing support and resources that will allow students to be successful at all points of transition during their college experience. Students will be connected to Student Affairs and campus resources in order to help students effectively navigate times of transition and continue timely progression to graduation.

Dawg Camp

Dawg Camp provides a foundation for a successful college experience by exposing participants to student life, exploring common transition topics, and engaging in fun and dynamic activities.

Welcome UGA

Welcome UGA is a campus wide effort to celebrate and support first-year, transfer and returning students to campus at the beginning of each semester. The great thing about Welcome UGA is that there are events and programs that range in size, location, and focus—you are sure to find something that interests you!

Sophmore September

Sophomore September, a month filled with various social, academic, and well-being events catered to you all as the Class of 2024, is a great way for you all to connect with various campus resources and your peers. Some events to highlight are SophoMORE Stride, Study Away fairs, and a drive-in movie plus many more! If you attend one event from each of our three categories (social, academic, and well-being), you will have the opportunity to participate in a tour of Sanford Stadium and the West End Zone.
